.OUTLOOK (DAYS 3-5)...
RAIN CHANCES WILL CONTINUE INTO THE WEEKEND. A GENERALLY MODERATE
ONSHORE FLOW IS EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEKEND...WITH SLIGHTLY LOWER
WINDS DURING THE BEGINNING OF NEXT WEEK. THE MODERATE ONSHORE FLOW
COULD BRING THE RIP CURRENT RISK TO AT LEAST MODERATE LEVELS
THROUGH THE WEEKEND.

* A HIGH RIP CURRENT RISK MEANS THE SURF IS DANGEROUS FOR ALL LEVELS
  OF SWIMMERS. EVEN THOSE USING SURF OR BOOGIE BOARDS ARE URGED TO
  USE EXTREME CAUTION. RIP CURRENTS ARE LIFE-THREATENING TO ANYONE
  ENTERING THE SURF.

* WAVE HEIGHT AND PERIOD FORECASTS ARE REPRESENTATIVE OF DEEP OCEAN
  WAVES OVER THE OFFSHORE WATERS...NOT SURF CONDITIONS.
